  • Patent number: 10974213
    Abstract: An apparatus for and method of enabling enhanced, selective agitation of liquid containing a solid-phase reagent. The apparatus includes at least one liquid-bearing container, a circular tray, and a motor. The liquid-bearing container(s) includes at least one internal baffle that imparts turbulent agitation to the liquid when flowing from one end of the container to an opposite end. The circular tray is adapted for selective rotation about a vertical axis of rotation. The rotary circular tray assembly includes container-receiving stations that selectively retain a respective liquid-bearing container in an inclined or pitched orientation with respect to a horizontal plane. The motor creates centrifugal force, which causes liquid in the container(s) to travel from the first end of the container to the second end of the container via the internal baffle(s), agitating the liquid and the solid-phase portions of the reagent.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 7960114
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods and compositions for predicting patient responses to cancer treatment using hypoxia gene signatures. These methods can comprise measuring in a biological sample from a patient the levels of gene expression of a group of the genes designated herein. The present invention also provides for microarrays that can detect expression from a group of genes.
